When the evil Sultan of Samandra captures the Camel, Sir Hokus teams up with a young rocketeer named Speedy to save his steed and reverse the Sultan's malevolent magic spells. The Yellow Knight of Oz is the tenth Oz book written by L. Frank Baum's successor, Ruth Plumly Thompson, and the only one of Thompson's Oz books to be adapted for the stage. The book is illustrated by John R. Neill, who illustrated all of Baum's Oz books except for The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900), which was illustrated by W. W. Denslow. Item #LFB0021
